In the absence of any entertainment from the players inside Wembley Stadium, fans had to rely on the pitch invader at England vs Slovenia for their amusement on Thursday evening.
Another expectantly dull encounter with the national team was briefly paused for a little merriment as the man was chased around the field of play.
These were the best tweets and jokes about the pitch invader at England vs Slovenia:
The pitch invader has covered more yards than any England player tonight. #ENGSVN

Pitch invader with the best run we’ve seen all night @ Wembley #ENGSLO

Apparently, a pitch invader will "reflect badly on the FA". Unlike this turgid display, which will be celebrated #ENGSVN

Awful to see a pitch invader managed to get past security. He had no business being on the pitch. But enough about Jordan Henderson!

Kane denies the pitch invader MOTM
